You have brought to the surface the issue of censorship. The Internet Archive is a library...a repository of a multitude of media venues--and content. It is simply a "storage" facility and you have the freewill to view or not view...not edit the content. As repulsive as the reference you make is it is no more, to some, repulsive than the vintage stag films or even the feature film "The Invasion of the Bee Girls". You have the right to object but not demand the expulsion of the offering simply because it offends you...you simply do not reflect the opinion[s] of the whole body of users of the Internet Archive.

The presentation should remain and be moved to the appropriate section.

I am sorry but you are wrong. A degree of censorship should be in place if only to protect the innocence of any child who may stumble upon it. There are people working for the archive who's job it is to police it. They are failing in their duty if they allow illegal or unlawful items to find their way into the archive. They are already failing miserably whenever they allow copyright material in, as they do daily. If ever there was an arguement for censorship, this is it. Until there is a way to prevent children from accessing the archive, censorship needs to be firmly in place. LIKE IT OR NOT!!!

There is no premium for protecting a child save parental guidance. No, there should not be censorship..."LIKE IT OR NOT!!!" Cruise around the Internet Archive and discover all that is sex, violence, political dissension, and radical philosophy. You censor one item you potentially open avenues for the censorship of all. If you don't like it, don't watch, listen, or read the material.

Please take your censorship and find a bubble wrapped site.

Agreed, this should not be deleted, the world needs to see the barbarity of the people we spend billions of dollars for smart bombs not to injure with collateral damage.

As soon as my song is old enough to process this stuff he will be showed these things so he can understand the reality of the world.

I talk to yuppies and yippies and trendies all day long who are doing simple things for their kids, kids that are in their 20's and even sometimes 30s. These kids are in college and could complete the online forms and stuff in about 2 minutes, it takes the parents hours of phone calls and stupid questions about what PDF files are and how email works. How is that helping anyone? It wastes my time, wastes the parents time, and slows down the child's application.

This is lunacy... these kids have been sheltered and placated their whole lives and my son will eat them alive in the job market some day (allah willing).

But back to the point, I used to be against the posting of this stuff but my opinion now is that the world needs to know what these people are about so the PC police cannot sanitize reality and revise history for their own political gains.

These jihadist propagandists are serving a purpose they might not realize, educating the world on how important it is to eliminate them from existence.

Pull the troops out and eliminate half of our nuclear arsenal to make the russians happy, just make sure the wind is not blowing their way when we do it.

Then there should be an age limit on who can view items on this site, I wouldn't want my child to see this.

Understandable, but impossible to enforce. It would also mean that "every" item at the Internet Archive would have to be reviewed for content and subjected to some arbitrary criterion...just to protect you child. Would you prevent your child from reading Twain's "Tom Sawyer" or Swift's "Gulliver's Travels" or viewing "Sunset Murder Case" [featuring Sally Rand's bubble dance] or "Baby Doll"? The responsibility lies within your domain as a parent.

there's a red caution sign on the collection page that has that item in it
